Why Switch?

When you choose a new electric supplier, you are choosing the company that generates your electricity. Generation supply costs make up the majority of the average electric bill, so you may be able to find significant savings.

You have the power to choose your electric supplier – the company that generates your electricity. This is just one part of the three parts of your electric service:

  1. Generation: The production of electricity.
  2. Transmission: The movement of electricity from where it is generated to the point of distribution.
  3. Distribution: The delivery of electricity to your home or business.


Remember, regardless of who generates your electricity, you will continue to call your electric utility for outages, emergency services and questions about your residential service. The quality, reliability, and maintenance of your electric service should not change as it is still monitored by the PUC.
